Stamped Tin Gift

Everyone loves getting those special gifts that someone made just for you!

 You know that the giver spent time thinking about you during the creative process, and these gifts, while often less expensive than their store bought brethren, are cherished forever by the recipients. Given pride of place on fireplace mantels and bedroom dressers, used frequently with love, each time this gift is enjoyed the recipient stops to think of the giver. 

 Each day this week the Stampendous Design Team ladies will bring you some clever and creative ideas for making some of your own gifts this year. We hope we inspire and delight you with these ideas. And on Saturday, the whole gang will be back with more inspiration and creativity. 

Today I wanted to share a metal tin that I stamped on.  I found the tin at Michael's Craft Store.
Stamping on it just adds that personal touch!


It's perfect for holding craft supplies or you could put a plant in it before giving it as a gift.

I stamped Ranunculous Field several times with Boss Gloss embossing ink and embossed with Detail Black embossing powder.  Use care when handling the tin as it gets hot when you heat it.

After embossing the tin I colored in the flowers with Sharpie markers and then glued the pearl trim around the bottom edge.

Wow this is beautiful! I'm learning so much. I love that you embossed and colored with sharpies. I was about to give my sharpies to my daughter because I received a new set of marks. Thanks for the fun idea. TFS AJ-

This is such a terrific tin, Kristine! Love that it comes with a plastic liner so it's perfect for plants! Would be a fabulous storage bin for those Copic Reinkers as well!
